Bears start strong, take control over Lions

Monday night’s NFC North battle is shaping up to be a one-sided beating: The Bears have taken control at Soldier Field and are taking it to the Lions.

The Lions’ offense has been able to do nothing: The first possession ended with an uncharacteristic Calvin Johnson drop on third down, and Detroit’s first six offensive drives ended five three-and-outs and one four-and-out.

The Bears’ offense has moved the ball effectively, marching down the field 59 yards for a touchdown on the first drive and getting into field-goal range twice, although Lions defensive end Lawrence Jackson blocked one of the Bears’ field-goal attempts.

The Bears have 10 first downs to one for the Lions, and Chicago leads 10-0 early.

    Karma sucks, eh?

    Hope Cutler doesn’t miss much time. He’s looking good and I want the Packers to beat the Bears with no excuses.

    I think Tice as the OC is possibly one of the best things for Cutler. Tice always was able to get the best out of Daunte Culpepper. And he’s doing the same with Cutler. Tice has a good connection with the players. Keeping Tice with Cutler, and Marshall will prove to be something special in Chicago.

    10-0? Really taking it to them…both teams look pretty inept overall.

    The Lions should use shotgun exclusively. Stafford looks way more comfortable passing out of the shotgun

    Ugly game. Ugly calls by refs. I love how these regular clowns are being held accountable like everyone swore would happen. Or not. This whole league is one big PR sham. Oh wait this while world has become one big PR sham.
